Viola’s ”lolita” wardrobe post! (Picture heavy)

Hi internetland it’s Viola from faerieland!

I thought I would make a ”lolita” wardrobe tour for you all. Just the dresses and skirts. BTW, I usually do not like to call it lolita because of the novel with the same name.

I tend to call these types of clothes whimsical fashion or just egl. (which is short for elegant gothic lolita) I want to show you that this lovely fashion doesn’t have to be expensive!  I get all my stuff from second hand groups on facebook, thrift shops, flea markets, aliexpress or bodyline. Of course I didn’t get it all at once, sometimes I save up for it (I have very little money to spend) and this wardrobe is the result of being on the hunt for lolita for many years.

However, this year I’ll make an effort to only shop second hand or sew them myself (I have heaps of material! I’m drowning haha!)  I love my clothes but I feel responsible to make my clothes and shopping even more sustainable + I own SO MUCH clothing. To boil it down to the core and point I love the earth even more so that’s why. 🙂

Now I’ll get on with the tour.

☽ Planning a future sewing project

Hi internetland, It’s Viola from faerieland!

Today is a cold, rainy day here in faerieland and that’s putting me in my favourite cosy, creative mood!

Yesterday I was ebay window shopping for fabric, not planning on purchasing anything and I found this amazing fir tree printed fabric.

As I fell in love with it every second as I looked at it, I asked my partner what he thought of me buying it. He thought I should if I wanted to and that he was going to pay for half of it if I decided to do so. He is truly such a sweetheart. Spoiling me!❤

So I decided I wanted to buy it, so I did. But I thought that I wanted something more sewn on the skirt so I browsed through the lace search results and I ended up falling in love again, this time with some dark green guipure(I think?) lace!



The listing was for 8 meters so I will have a lot left, so I could easily decorate lots of accesories for the skirt with it!

Here is what I’ve been sketching for the skirt so far:

A very simple, yet beautiful design. It’s going to be enough though since the pattern of the fabric is kind of busy with all of the fir trees, especially if the print on the fabric is smaller than I imagine haha.

I’m looking forward to this project. BUT I’ve got to fix my sewing machine before I can start this project. I need to do some up keeping service! 🙂

Thank you so much for reading. I’m hoping I can inspire some of you to create more beautiful things, for real cheap like I do! 🙂 ❤

Have a great weekend!


☽ Outfit: Old school look

Hi internetland, It’s Viola from faerieland.

Today I’m coming at you with my very first outfit post on this blog 🙂

These posts are basically me posting an outfit picture with an outfit rundown, telling you where I got the things or the brand. My closet mostly consists of second hand items, I want to encourage more people to shop second hand, It’s fun, cheap and great for the enviroment and sometimes the money you spend goes to charity! 😀

Anyways, here is my outfit post!

Much love,


☽ A happy, lifechanging & awakening moment

Hi internetland, it’s Viola from faerieland!

Today I thought I was going to write about something that’s been on my mind for a long time. Life is short right? It’s not going to pause just because you want it to. At some point my identity shattered to pieces and I had an identity crisis and I was at my worst last autumn. I started questioning things I had enjoyed for years. As I had promised myself to, I put my well being first and get rid of all the things that I thought made me distracted at first but I actually made it a lot worse by taking away these ”unnecessary” things in my life, I now realize.

I am just a person with very many facets, intrests, things I enjoy, just like everybody else! I thought that in order to connect the most with my soul I had to take away all these material intrests, like doing makeup and expressing my art through the things I wear on my body… it’s not true! I can own as many things I want and still be so in touch, just knowing that material things aren’t everything there is to life, and take that responsibility for your well being, not let anything consume you too much.

What I thought I did was giving myself freedom when I actually as I see it now, took my freedom away! I mean maybe I had to take things away for a little while, just to see what I wanted. (look hard and try to always learn something from things you’ve done or experienced.)

The point is that I can be whatever I want to be, I create my life and I am responsible for it.

I always think so much that I go around in circles and then I find the answer right in front of me, right where I started.

I looove fashion. That does not make me a stuck up and vain person! I love to work on my spirituality and ponder on the deeper, bigger questions in life and I still can while I have fun!

My challenge will be trying to fuse these things together, carry and balance them in life, without thinking too much about it but still have some kind of control. Also not comparing myself to others, I walk my path this way and everyone else theirs. Oh how life is like walking on a thin thread, balancing yourself through everything…

but guess what? It’s so fucking worth it!

So if I could leave my identity shattered, scary and long moment behind me… that would be great!

I wrote this for my sake so I can read it again later, you know just in case I fall down the rabbit hole again in the future. Life is way too short, enjoy yourselves!♡

Happiest of greetings,
